Wii Fit Board not working

My wii fit board is only 6 weeks old and has been working perfectly every day until today. Today when i was doing the step aerobics, it did not record all my steps - then when i repeated the exercise, the program asked me to get off the board - however, i was already off the board. The Board now will not go beyond asking me to get off the board. Any suggestions?

    I am having the same problem with the board not recognising my left foot stepping on when doing step plus and when I hula the left side always drops the hoops and fails.

    Please help. Is there a program where the board, maybe, needs re-aligning?

Make sure you have the board the right way around! i know it sounds silly but mine did this and all you have to do is make sure the power button is facing away from the tv! i dont know if that solves your problem but it solved mine!

Wii fit board keeps saying get off and press A to initialize game but no one on the board. Have tried new wii fit disk but same. Other ski game works with the board


You get off press a wait for it to say step on and then get on. If it keeps saying it after you get off, take out the batteries and get a new battery pack, don't step on it at all until it loads.

Wii Fit Doesn't work


Do not stand on the Wii fit board until it says to. The board needs to reset itself before any tests are completed. For best accuracy, complete all the initial tests and follow the instructions to the letter.

Wii Fit Board won't register with Wii Fit software


Nintendo had me set and reset the console and then the Wii fit board. They also had me take out the batteries from the Wii fit board, and repeat the reset. Apparently this works in many cases. IT didn't work for me, so now I'm bringing the unit in for repair. I am just a week past my 90 day warranty- they are charging me 47 bucks to fix it! What a sham! that's half the cost of what I paid for the darn thing!

"Step Off Me and Press A" message while not on wii board


When you get this message, lift the board off the ground, press A, and wait until you get to the confirmation screen before placing the board back on the ground. You may have to try a few times to get the timing right. I have no idea why it thinks someone is on the board, but this workaround has solved the problem for us. Good luck.

I'm trying to go through the setup to WII fit. My child did the body test with no problems a couple of days ago. I keep getting an error (fidgeting) when I try to take the body test.


Please be a bit more detailed in the problem. The Wii Fit Balance Board is very sensitive to weight shifts. Ensure that you allow the board to calibrate properly. To do this, I would suggest the following steps:

1) Place balance board on a sturdy, flat, smooth surface. If you have average-shag carpet, be sure to use the little adapters that fit over the feet. If the carpet is too thick, then it will NOT work properly. You may want to consider a small piece of plywood or something similar to set between the carpet and Balance Board.

2) Don't step onto the board until it has calibrated (this is when the board establishes its zero point). It will clearly say "Starting Up" followed by "Ok, Step On." After this, you can generally stay on the board unless a particular routine asks you to get off or for some reason it needs to recalibrate.

3) Finally, you must ALWAYS back out all the way to the Wii Fit Plaza (where you pick your Mii) if you change players. Once the board is configured for one player, it will only be suitable for that individual. Its sensitivity is based on an individuals weight. For instance, if the board is calibrated for a 3-year old's Mii, and an adult decides to play any of the routines on that Mii, the board will be over sensitive (calibrated for the lighter weight). Conversely, if an sdult's Mii is selected and a child plays a routine, the board may not detect the movement.

I hope these steps will help. If not, please offer a step by step explanation on what you are doing and I will try to reassess your situation.

Thanks!

WII FIT Board only recognizes movement on one side


Try doing the balance board test to make sure all the sensors are working probably. Click on "User Settings" (the wrench) on the wii fit plaza page. From there your should click on the "wii balance board check." It will walk you through the process and check your sensors to make sure they are working.

I found this on a related post, but it should help:

Hi,
After posting my message here I started to fiddle around with the wii fit again and went slowly step by step through the synchronisation steps. Voila it works! what I had done wrong was that I did not press the red synchronisation button for the wii console when the blue lights (after pressing the sync button) on the wii fir board started to flash. you must do this when they are flashing. Hopefully you are as lucky as me and it will work for you too.

I have found that every so often, especially while stepping on the board, the Wii Fit would get disconnected. I did a little research and found some interesting clues to why it might be happening. I had a theory. Since the batteries are at the bottom of the board I thought the vibration of stepping plus the pull of gravity might be loosening the battery connections enough for the board to lose power temporarily. To test my theory I made a shim out of cardboard from a cereal box to hold the batteries firmly in place. This seemed to have done the trick since I have not had the problem since. I created a template you can get from my site http://www.everythingtech.net/2009/03/wii-fit-board-connectivity-fix/
